The two 4th classes had the best day ever in UCD. From the minute we got there we were on the go non stop. It was one of the hottest days of the year and we were so hot but we didn't care because we were having so much fun. We got to go zorbing and rock climbing. We played lacrosse, we did an obstacle course and so much more - check out our pics....
In 4th class we have been learning all about Italy and Australia.
We know all about the Ancient Romans, Mt. Vesuvius and the foods of Italy. We even learned some Italian words.
We learned all about the weird and wonderful animals of Australia and the native aborigine people. We did some art work just like the aborigines do. It is called Dot Painting.
We decided that we were such experts on Italy and Australia that we should make some PowerPoints on the computer and present them to each other. The classes had great fun learning new skills on the computer and presenting our projects to each other - it was pretty nerve wracking standing up in front of a whole class like that but now we know how teacher feels every day!
Here are some pictures of our presentations, and our displays,,,
The 4th classes have been learning all about the Bray town hall this term. We asked lots of questions including:
When was it built? Why it was built? Who built it?
We looked at lots of pictures of the building both modern and old. Here are a few of them...
After reading some information about the Brabazon family – we were lucky enough to be able to walk down and have a look at the building close up.
We see it all the time but this time we were able to go upstairs and see where the first town council meeting was held. We even saw where our very own Mr O’ Brien and Mr Behan sit when they attend town council meetings.
We re-enacted a town council meeting while we were there and discovered the answers to all our questions about the building and the statue in front of it.
Afterwards, we did some artwork and wrote out some of our newly learnt facts about the building.
Have a look at our pics and facts. Maybe you'll learn something new as well!
